- Dec 2, 2007The conserns about karma...aftr I look around googlin' I find this
drama is much larger than just a posting here. How does the person
chasing around after what they perceive as a wrong get slapped with
The proper way to deal with impostors, as was relater to me by my
Lama, and which I have read in many books (Buddhist and Christian)
is to just ignore them. Don't waste time spreading angry hateful
words about people.
I do not know either of these persona, nor do I care how they
present themselves on the internet. The internet is a world of
false fronts and hidden identities. I can't prove wgho anyone is,
not even if I meet them in person. So why have a tissy about what
someone chooses as a name?
